Otto Porter doing little with increased role


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Wizards forward Otto Porter has found playing time tough to come by in his rookie season, but he has seen more of the floor in recent games thanks to an injury to Martell Webster.

Porter played a season-high 22 minutes off the bench Wednesday against the Jazz, but failed to make any sort of impact in a 104-91 win. Porter was held scoreless while missing his lone field-goal attempt, and he added just two rebounds and two steals to his line.

Pretty much nothing has gone right for Porter since he was selected with the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft. He has struggled to play through injuries, appearing in just 27 games and averaging 1.6 pints per game on 30.2 percent shooting. 


Otto Porter could go to D-League for playing time


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2014) Wizards head coach Randy Wittman did not rule out the possibility of forward Otto Porter playing a few games in the D-League, according to the Washington Post.

Porter has been buried in the rotation his entire rookie season. The first-round pick failed to see any minutes off the bench in a triple overtime game on Thursday against Toronto and only saw the court Saturday against Philadelphia once the game was well in hand. He is averaging 1.6 points and 1.4 rebounds in 25 appearances.

“We have to be a little careful with all the new guys we’re bringing back but I think down the down the road we could look at that in case, something [injuries]…You got to cover your back,” Wittman said.

Otto Porter completely out of rotation


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2014) Wizards forward Otto Porter pedigree has not been enough to get him playing time recently, as he earned a DNP for the fifth game in a row Tuesday against the Grizzlies.

Porter, the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft, has appeared in just 6 of the team's last 15 games and 22 of 33 since making his return from a hip injury. He is averaging 1.7 points and 1.5 rebounds per game. 


Otto Porter making little impact


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/7/2014)  Wizards forward Otto Porter continues to do little off the bench, as he scored just two points in a 97-83 win over the Bobcats Tuesday. He shot just 1 of 3 from the field in 11 minutes in the game.

Porter has yet to score in double figures in his 13-game NBA career, a disappointing showing for the No. 3 overall pick in last June's draft. He is averaging just 2.4 points in 12.2 minutes per game. 


Otto Porter held scoreless in season debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) After missing more than a month with a right hip flexor strain, Wizards rookie forward Otto Porter returned to action and endured an uneventful season debut Friday night against the Bucks.

Porter, the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft, entered the game off the bench at the start of the second quarter. He only logged 14 minutes of game action and missed all three of his field goal attempts, including a shot from beyond the arc. He was held scoreless with two rebounds and one assist in a 109-105 defeat.

Otto Porter ready to make his debut Friday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Wizards rookie forward Otto Porter (hip) has made enough progress in his recovery from his injury that the team has cleared him to make his season debut Friday against the Bucks. Porter has been out since the preseason after slipping and injuring his hip.

The No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft will likely come off the bench behind Trevor Ariza at small forward. Besides a three-game stint in the Las Vegas Summer league, Porter has not played since being drafted. The injury cost him all of training camp and the preseason, so he will likely be brought along slowly at first. 


Coach: Otto Porter could make debut Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2013) Wizards head coach Randy Wittman told Comcast SportsNet Washington that forward Otto Porter could make his season debut as early as this week.

Porter returned to practice for the first time on Monday after being out since Sept. 13 with a right hip flexor strain. The Wizards will have a few more days of practice before playing the Bucks on Friday.

"Otto, we got to get on the floor, get after him and get him going and see where we are after these three days," Wittman said.

Otto Porter, Chris Singleton finally practice


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2013) Wizards forwards Otto Porter (hip) and Chris Singleton (foot) were able to practice for the first time Monday, the team announced. Unfortunately, neither has any sort of timeline for an expected return to action, according to the Washington Post.

"If I knew, I'd tell you. I don't know," Porter said. "I got to take it one day at a time."

Neither Porter nor Singleton has been able to play this season.


Still no timeline for Chris Singleton, Otto Porter


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2013) The Wizards have been forced to play without forwards Chris Singleton (foot) and rookie Otto Porter (hip) so far this season, and coach Randy Wittman was unable to give a concrete timetable for either player when he spoke with the Washington Post Friday.  

"Chris is probably a lot closer than Otto is," Wittman said, when asked for a timetable. But he couldn't get specific with Porter. "Again, I still don’t know much on that. It's just a matter of doctors giving him the clearance."

Both players have been out since the preseason as a result of their injuries. 


Otto Porter undergoes MRI


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2013) Wizards forward Otto Porter underwent an MRI Monday on his strained right hip flexor, CSN Washington reports. 

Porter's hip continues to give him trouble and he's considered out indefinitely at this point. Porter struggled in limited action during the Summer League and was shut down due to a hamstring injury. 


Otto Porter still having hip pain


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2013) Wizards rookie forward Otto Porter met with team doctors Monday because his injured hip "still hurts," The Washington Post reports. 

"Just to make sure nothing is out of whack," Porter said about his upcoming evaluation. "It’s not healed yet. That's the only thing keeping me from getting out there on the court. I just got to rest and take time to heal."

Porter has missed most of training camp and the preseason and will surely be behind when the regular season begins and he gets healthy. 


No timetable for Otto Porter's return


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2013) Wizards forward Otto Porter continues to deal with a hip injury, and has yet to practice with the team in training camp. Unfortunately, nearly three weeks after the start of camp, there remains no timetable for his return, according to CSNWashington.com.

"I'm just trying to get in with my trainers, find some way to heal it so I can get out there," Porter said Tuesday.

Porter, the No. 3 overall pick this summer, is battling for playing time at small forward. It is not clear if he will be back in time for the start of the regular season.  


Otto Porter dealing with hip injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2013) Wizards rookie forward Otto Porter was forced to sit out the team's first practice in training camp Saturday, due to a right hip flexor injury. Porter was limited to taking stand-still jump shots after practice.

"No moving. Keep that to a minimum," he told the Washington Post

Porter suffered the injury during a pickup game at the team's facility a few weeks ago, when he slipped on the court. He does not have a timeline for his return to action, but thinks he is day-to-day at this point.

"It occurred recently, you know, just playing. Something just twist[ed]," Porter said. "But nothing major, though. I'm going to take it day by day, see how it feels."

Porter is fighting for playing time at small forward with veterans Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster. 


Otto Porter learns from early struggles


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2013) Wizards first-round pick forward Otto Porter received a bit of a trial by fire in the Las Vegas summer league, and he struggled in his first taste of post-collegiate action. Still, the No. 3 overall pick learned from his tough experience, as he told the Washington Post in early August.

"It's a learning experience for me. I just learned from it," he said. "It's the NBA. It’s 10 times faster, 10 times stronger and 10 times smarter. That’s the thing I took from summer league. Just that little taste, it was like a wake-up call. The competition is tougher. That’s what I took away from it."

Porter missed 21 of the 30 shots he took in a little over two games, before going down with a hamstring injury in the third game. He has taken that as a cue that he still needs to work, and has been working out with his future teammates at the team's facility in D.C.

"Ever since I've been drafted, I went back to D.C. and from Day One, I've automatically been like, 'What do I need to do? What do I need to work on,'" he said. "I've always wanted to learn and being hungry, just wanting to know more to last in the NBA."

Porter is expected to slot in at small forward for the Wizards, though it is not yet clear if he will usurp either veterans Martell Webster or Trevor Ariza for a starting spot.
